of the residents of northern california and our entire state, we join president barack obama, secretary of state hillary rodham clinton, democratic leader nancy pelosi and expensive network of people in saluting ambassador chris stevens who will be remembered for his strong sense of dignity, his humility and his generous service to others. he will be truly missed by all who loved him and by all he served throughout the magnitude of his life's work. thank you for this honor.

(laughter) but al qaeda or one of al qaeda's able a. teams, the ansar al-sharia mud hens. (laughter) so susan rice met yesterday with senators mccain, graham and ayotte to clear the air. how did that go? >> ambassador rice i think does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight clearly was completely wrong. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn'

to the program. >>> hillary clinton has served president obama for four years as secretary of state. four years from now, could she be moving into her boss' office over at the white house? after this weekend, a lot more people are beginning to speculate about what hillary clinton is planning to do. our "strategy session," james carville and mary matlin, are both standing by live. music is a universal language. but when i was in an accident... i was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. bp has paid overthe people of bp twenty-threeitment to the gulf. billion dollars to help those affected and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open, and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. and bp's also committed to america. we support

, the most significant development at the federal level was the reelection of president obama. and i think that what that means for transportation, not only in the state of california, but nationwide, is pretty significant including, of course, what it does to high-speed rail. and the president has been a very strong supporter of that and that's something that we have been pushing for here in california and we want to make sure that we continue our efforts. but that certainly is a positive development on that -- on that front. as we move forward to the next year, one of the things that i'd like to ask my colleagues is to simply think about some of the priorities that we should have as a body, not only priorities in terms of the individual projects or needs that each one of our districts has, but also collectively the priorities for the city. i know that we have seen a great deal of cooperation between the county transportation authority and the sfmta and i think that it's important for us to continue those efforts. and one of the things that i wanted to see next year is to -- and focus mor

. secretary of state clinton is underscoring president obama's warning that if the syrian government uses chemical weapons, the u.s. will take action. there's no evidence they've done more at this point than move the components around and it could be a bluff but officials believe they have access to several hundred missiles that could carry chemical warheads. we're back after the break. >>now let's get some real news.

the united states respond to this? >> it becomes very difficult. what do you do about this? president obama's called it a red line. there is no appetite for unilateral u.s. strike against any of these fights. you have to give the coalition in the region on board, and at the moment, i think it's fair to say they're going to go with extreme diplomatic pressure against the signs that they're seeing that this weapons inventory is being moved around and possibly, possibly being prepared for use. they're not sure yet what the intent really is. but everyone is saying this time it looks different. >> meanwhile, a side story but also very important is they're having trouble controlling the flow of weapons into the country, especially from iran, because iraq is not intercepting these planes as they go through its air space. >> this has been one of the big questions, how is the weapons flow either to the rebels or to the regime to resupply the regime, how is it all getting in there? by all accounts the iranians still resupplying the regime at various times, coming in by air cargo and those cargos are

the cliff. were going to go over the cliff anyway. if indeed we buy into barack obama's plan on raising taxes. remember, that is only going to make washington and the united states live for about eight and a half days. this is what i mean by the republicans are not define the issue. they are allowing the president to define the issue that is out there. geithner is saying that the republicans are willing to talk about revenues going out by closing loopholes. they've been talking about that for a long time. they have never not talked about that issue. gerri: are we any closer tonight to getting a deal that we were three weeks ago? >> no. and this is a challenge. if you keep compromising toward the white house you discover the white house becomes a receding horizon. they keep raising the size of the tax increase, the spending cuts become smaller and more unlikely to actually ever happen . and i think their is a very real challenge here because the problem is overspending. the problem is overspeeding. every day that the press is allowed of the white house has allowed to focus on taxes is a

in reality? is there still a two-state solution? >> i think there is. as long as we're all confined to that 5% of the west bank. but if there's benign neglect in the second term of the obama administration in my view this will get out of hand. i am concerned about it. i think we're not there yet. but if there's four years of neglect, then each side takes unilateral steps. then we're in a very different place. therefore, that's why it's very important to get these parties to the table right now. >> suarez: quick final comment from ghaith. do palestinians still believe that the two-state solution is on the table? >> absolutely. public opinion over and over again believes that the two-state solution is do-able, is preferrable. they do not believe that it's realized in the foreseeable future. if the public starts losing faith in the viability of the two-state solution it will be abandoned. >> suarez: ghaith and david, good to talk to you both. >> thank you. >> brown: now, how to increase student performance in america's secondary schools. federal education officials announced today that five stat

of paul william grimm to be united states district judge for the district of maryland. with his confirmation, the senate will have confirmed 159 of president obama's nominees to the district of circuit courts. during the last presidential election year, -- 2008, that is -- the senate confirmed a total of 28 judges, 24 district and four circuit. this presidential election year, we have exceeded those numbers. we have confirmed five circuit nominees and judge grimm's will be the 32nd district judge confirmed. that is a total of 37 judges this year versus 28 in the last presidential election year. so once again i want to set the record straight and i hope i've done so. republicans have been more than fair to this president and his judicial nominees. i support this nomination and will put the balance of my statement in the record. i suggest -- i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from georgia. mr. chambliss: i'd ask that the quorum call be dispensed with. the
